Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Ugh, not sure how I missed those Chicago references as I was quickly scanning, hoping against hope that the Chi-town tryout invitations were fake news.

Sadly, it appears no invite this year again, despite yet another score of 45.

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

I see a note that the Chicago test is August 24, but no one has mentioned being invited. I checked my mailbox today (including the spam folder) and no invite, sadly. Can anyone confirm?

Re: Jeopardy 2019 North American Audition Tour

Has anyone seen the Chicago audition invitations go out yet? I'm hoping it hasn't - I scored a 45 on the test and have my fingers crossed!

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Pacific), April 11, 2019

Happy to verify that I pulled a 46/50, my best showing over the now 7 times I've taken the test (3 of which led to fruitlessly being invited to jump into the pool).

Now I just need TPTB to give me a call up this time!

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Congrats, SJMorales! You're going to have so much fun! Am I right in thinking the auditions still have not been held San Francisco or Seattle yet? I haven't heard anything about SF or Seattle either. I hope they haven't forgotten about us. :oops: In the same boat here, awaiting even a peep from TPT...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

The last three Seattle auditions that I've been invited to attend (2005, 2007, 2011) were in November, September and August respectively. Pretty sure I didn't get invited to the most recent one (2013?), but I'm not surprised they haven't scheduled Seattle yet. Khiddy, I remember you and mennoknight...

Re: "JeoparScore" App

Sadly, the app that Nomad1 posted no longer works (at least, not in the US version of the Apple App Store). I really wish there was a way to test myself against the J-Archive on the go with an app! Still paging Roger Craig!

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

Just checking in - no one has heard anything about Seattle or Portland in-persons yet this summer, have they? I'm hoping not to be passed over again this year after delivering a 44 on the test earlier this Spring!

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

This board is a self selected group and additionally a person or two probably inflates his scores. There's such an overwhelming horde of average players that the show doesn't need to selectively weed out high scorers. The result is a general regression to the mean, a bunch of folks trying out who t...

Re: Timing of Audition Invite Emails

I just learned that the Portland tryout was yesterday, and that makes me really sad, as I didn't get an invitation, despite a 44 on the online test earlier this year. Sad. You're really missing out on a helluva contestant in me, Alex!

Re: Online Test Recap & Discussion (Eastern), January 8, 2013

Done. Now I'm checking my answers. I know I skipped three questions, and had questionable guesses at one or two more... other than that, I feel good!

EDIT: I managed to film my test-taking, so that I could double-check for my definitive score: 42/50. Right in the sweet spot for my previous efforts.

Re: Online Test -- Practice Version

42/50, with pretty much the exact same mistakes (and reasoning) as Joon, so what can I say? I'd be happy with that again! (I got a 41 or 43 last time, got the interview into the pool, but no call...)

Re: "The Jeopardy Question No One Could Answer"

Is it possible that this email is going around because the Tomb of the Unknown has been back in the news this week, what with the Marines continuing to stand guard even in the face of Hurricane Tropical Storm Superstorm Sandy?

I just wanted to chime in and say that I was delighted to see Glenn on the show.
